Crispa not eating fish meat

I have a crispa anemone that has tucked its body/foot through a small crevice underneath a live rock. It still opens up beautifully and sticky to touch. However, I tried feeding it small pieces of fresh fish meat but it will hold onto the piece for short while before letting it go. Is the small crevice restricting its body and somehow influencing it not to take in solids?

Thanks I will try krill and other types of food. Does anyone know whether a small crevice will be detrimental for the anemone? I cannot imagine it growing bigger with its body restricted by it.

Looks like it’s probably a Malu to me. They like sand.

I identified it as a Crispa as its column is like a white hide with bumps along the rim. I'm planning to add sand in once I move house later this year.
